General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Maurice Benard (Sonny) is being celebrated by his costars and friends. Benard recently had a birthday, so plenty of cast members have reached out to wish him a good one. However, Steve Burton’s (Jason) message just might be the most special of the bunch!
If you follow Burton and Benard on social media, you’re probably aware of their close bond. These two have been big buddies for many years. Benard was thrilled when Burton decided to return as Jason Morgan, so they’ve undoubtedly been loving all their scenes together. Their friendship is clearly stronger than ever.
Burton sent out a tweet to let Benard know how much he appreciates their connection. He included a throwback pic, which delighted GH fans. “To one of the greatest,” Burton said. “Happy Birthday to my brother, mentor & great friend @MauriceBenard.”
Burton went on to talk about Benard being there for him when he first started out. “I was just a young lad when you took me under your wing,” Burton said. “Forever grateful for your selflessness to help others. Have a great day buddy.” Aww! It’s nice when costars not only get along, but truly respect and care about each other.
General Hospital spoilers say both Jason and Sonny have hot plots coming up. Jason will naturally face more complications with Sam (Kelly Monaco), so expect major drama. As for Sonny, he’ll have a tough time dealing with Mike’s (Max Gail) diagnosis. This Alzheimer’s storyline is sure to be brutal. The Corinthos clan will be in crisis mode for quite a while.
Of course, the current earthquake will affect this family as well. Michael (Chad Duell) could end up in a fight for his life, so that’s one more thing for Sonny and Jason to worry about. General Hospital viewers will want to check out all the action next week.
